Ok, today i decided to format my pc, format went fine and everything was ok. I took out my gfx card before i formatted for some reason i don't know why. So after my format i turn my pc off and put in my gfx card and plug the monitor lead into it, switch on my pc but the monitor doesnt come on, it just stays on the amber light. The fan is spinning, my cdroms wont open, the light on the front of my pc isnt on either.
Plugging my monitor lead back into the original socket that i used when i formatted but it doesnt work anymore, the same prob as above.
Taking out the battery for 5 minutes and putting it back in.
Taking out memory and gfx card.
Switching my Power supply with a really bad ower supply which i dont even know would handle my pc as its so old but that didnt work anyway.
I don't really get it as this morning everything worked fine and then all of a sudden nothing.
Check the pins on your monitor as some of them may be bent. Same happened to me about a year ago - i tried very carefully to move the pins back into place but one broke off - new monitor was needed as it would have cost £50 to get a repair guy to fix it.
Check the pins aren't out of place.
Same happened with my mouse when my sister used it, but luckily i managed to move them back into position.
